50" 4K scaled to 1440p 60
DP1.4 to HDMI connector

I have ran benchmarks attached below, and also for comparison, some other users hack using a GTX 1070.

as shown from the scores below, the GTX 1070 on avg beats my 1080 in all area of benchmarking.

Any ideas to this? some other users GTX 1080 also beats my own so idk whats going on here. I am also noticing that Heaven benchmarks are a lot lower than my Windows score as well.

Your Luxmark result is in line with the benchmark @ barefeats.com (which also looks a little too slow). Not sure what's going on there.

The other results are most likely bottlenecked by your CPU, since it's single thread performance (and this is what matters in OpenGL) is inferior to the i7. Cinebench isn't meaningful at all, I wouldn't recommend using it.

However, I found a bug that after sleep the certain part of screen blinking, the problem can be solved by re-attaching the display cable(DP).
I can run cuda samples and run Dota 2, but FPS in dota2 is < 40% than it was on Windows 10. Also, I can feel there are some lags during teamfight. I really hope Nvidia can put more resources on improving the driver.

I disagree with the CPU part, as you can see my CPU is nowhere better than OP's, but my score is higher.
I do have a PCI-E nvme SSD, that could speed up loading and maybe other stuff, but since eventually it will be cached in the RAM, I don't think the storage will be a big factor.

I'm sad. gtx 1060 same OpenGL performance with similar cpu setup as a gtx 1080.. hopefully this is driver issue rather than system build / hackintosh issue

I have had my 5820k OC to 4.3 ghz on all the tests. My gpu doesn't boost however. Idk I'm thinking it's just beta driver issue for 1080

Did you ever manage to gain better performance from the 1080? I'm getting similar benchmarks, using the most up to date Nvidia Web Driver (378.05.05.25f04) - I'm still on Sierra and the 1060 in my other machine seems to be only a little way behind the 1080, that machine is on High Sierra - wondering if this could help?
